Show notes 3/21/11

One of the dominant themes of this show is the exposure of the
principle of the shock doctrine and its applications in many different
domains, ranging from the so-called financial crisis to the so-called
war on drugs to the so-called war on terror to so-called medicine
and nutrition.  The opportunities are endless.  So what do I mean
by the shock doctrine?  It’s very simple really: the creation of a
problem in order to profit from the remedy to it.  There’s a humorous
illustration of the technique on youtube, where the three stooges
are seen introducing mice, ants and moths into a mansion during a
socialite party and then posing as pest exterminators.  The name
of the skit is “ants in the pantry” and it ought to be shown in our
gradeschools to educate children about how the world really works.
Unfortunately our lack of such basic education is reflected in the
reluctance of grownups to face less humourous realities in the
public sphere, where criminal cartels and secretive networks of
intergenerationally self-replicating psychopaths have infested
virtually every conceivable niche of our economic, defense, law
enforcement and medical infrastructures, exploiting the trust and
good intentions of millions of public servants and doctors in the
process.  CBS recently did an expose of a particularly offensive
illustration of the principle in operation.  The bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms, the federal agency which is purportedly in
charge of enforcing federal gun laws, has been standing by and
watching while mexican criminal gangs ship thousands of
weapons, including 50 caliber rifles and machine guns, from the US
into mexico, where the weapons have been used to commit numerous
murders, including at least one murder of a US border patrol agent.
All of this with the blessings of the so-called department of justice.

This appears to be part of a larger ATF policy of refusing to shut
down known illicit gun trafficking all over the country.  The more
obvious payoff of course is that the ATF can use the resulting
criminal activity to lobby for more US tax dollars to protect us
from the consequences of their negligence.  A kind of back-handed
protection racket.  “Hey uh, we really want to help you uh, you
know, be safe in da neighborhood, but uh, you know, it’s really
hard, business is boomin if you know what I mean …”
Variations on this theme can be seen in the war on drugs and of course
in the wall street gamblers bailout.

In a larger context of course, all this federal corruption is being
used in a concerted propaganda campaign against the second amendment
to the constitution, which the founders wrote into the bill of
rights so that we the people might be secure in our own homes and
be able to protect ourselves from precisely this kind of predatory
government.  You can draw your own conclusions about the existence
of a larger agenda here, especially in light of the massive inflation,
poverty and taxation which wall street and the so-called federal
reserve has so carefully engineered for us.  The coming meltdown
amounts to a gullibility test for the american people and the good
people who serve in government:  will they be able and willing to
connect the dots and see the traitors and scam artists for what
they are?

Speaking of gullibility, I have a quick test for you: suppose you
stub your toe and it hurts so you go to the doctor.  But the doctor
doesn’t look at your toe, he looks at your brain instead.  He puts
your head in an MRI and does all kinds of expensive tests to determine
whether you might have disordered thoughts about that particular
toe, which could be co-morbid with a reluctance to trust your doctor,
both of which are often precursors to a deeper brain pathology
involving complicated sounding chemicals and neural structures that
reach out like tentacles from your reptilian brain, all because you
had the misfortune of coming from a bad gene pool.  As he reaches
for a shiny new chrome plated sterile craftsman screwdriver in
preparation for a pre-emptive lobotomy, one of the few procedures
covered under your health care plan, he’s suddenly called to the
phone and disappears for a few minutes.  Do you:

a) thank your lucky stars they caught it in time
b) wonder whether a quick head-botomy might be more effective
c) hobble out the back door as fast as you can

Now make the following substitutions in the above scenario: instead
of having a broken toe you live in a broken home, instead of physical
pain you suffer from emotional pain, and instead of reaching for a
chrome plated craftsman screwdriver, he attaches two shiny electrodes
to your head and prepares to plug them into a very expensive looking
chrome plated electrical wall outlet.  Does your gullibility quotient
win out over your intelligence quotient?

On the phone with us today is John Breeding, a clinical psychologist
and counselor from austin texas who has just returned from what he
calls a battle in gaithersburg, an FDA hearing on a proposal to
reclassify psychiatry’s electroshock machines as being safe and effective
without the peer-reviewed scientific studies which would otherwise
be required of their manufacturers.  Believe it or not, after decades
of use on hundreds of thousands of people, mainly women and children,
the FDA was considering whether such an approval process ought to
be undertaken at all.
